Text/BRAND NEW. Sienna-brown linen boards w/gilt spine lettering/Fine. DJ/NF; price-slipped, else fine. Gift inscription to front endpaper. A study of how the American people and the American land have interacted. The story is told through photographs (89 plates) of Eliot Poter (1901 - 1990) and the prose of Wallace Earle Stegner (1909 - 1993), author of The Big Rock Candy Mountain (1943) and Angle of Repose (1971, Pulitzer Prize), and his writer, novelist, and historian son Page Stegner (1937 -).

Acerca de


An informative text by the distinguished novelist complements a collection of photographs of the American landscape in a work that depicts all aspects of American life from the Rocky Mountains to the state of Maine.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is an attempt, by sampling, to say something about how the American people and the American land have interacted, how they have shaped one another; what patterns of life, with what chances of continuity, have arisen out of the confrontations between an unformed society and a virgin continent. Perhaps it is less a book about the American land than some ruminations about the making of America. . . . We are the unfinished product of a long becoming."
—from American Places

"The text by the Stegners is precise, to the point, packed with useful information and infused with that love for our land and its honest workers which is the highest form (perhaps the only form) of patriotism."
—Edward Abbey
